January CVB Report

Needless to say we are busy at the CVB. On January 8, I am attending the Tarrant County RV Show in Fort Worth and on January 29, 30 & 31 the CVB will have a booth at the North Texas Golf Expo in Dallas.

We are finalizing our marketing plans for 2010 and are working with Fossil Rim on some co-op marketing ideas. Mainly blitzing smaller markets such as Abilene, Wichita Falls, San Angelo, etc. with billboards, newspaper and radio ads. We will also continue to advertise in our statewide publications such as Texas Monthly, Texas Highways, etc. We are also devoting more advertising dollars to group travel. We have a strong web presence and will be running ads with Group Tour Media.

On the Oakdale Park project I am assessing all of the buildings to determine which ones we repair first and what is needed. I have completed 12 and will finish the rest this next week. I met with the Preservation Board and have assured them they will be included in the loop as we progress on Oakdale Park and that one of the city’s primary concerns is to preserve the historical integrity of the park. Ronald and I met with the Grant Writer and helped him better plan for his grant application and he clarified for us what we could and could not do before getting grant approval. I also met with Bud Surles who has tremendous credentials and experience on park and rv resort planning. His information is included in your packet. On January 12 I am meeting with a company that specializes in pools, water parks and playground equipment. I have also met with Child’s Play Inc, which offers the similar products and services. City staff has gutted the Oakdale offices and we hope to complete that phase by January 20.

After talking to the grant writer these are the items that can be paid for with the grant we are applying for from the state: playgrounds and equipment, trails, picnic tables and pavilions, benches, possibly rv spaces, the pool and anything else that is considered recreation. We can not tackle these parts of the project until we know if we will receive the grant or not.  Items that can not be paid for through the grant are restrooms, buildings, fence, etc.

As always the Glen Rose Convention & Visitors Bureau is working to find new and innovative ways to market and promote Glen Rose and Somervell County. If any of you have any questions or needs concerning the CVB, please do not hesitate to contact me or Joyce.
